A million places to stay (whoa!!)

It sure feels like there’s a million places to stay on Waiheke.  From Total Fancy Pants (good morning ms Swank)  to Cheap as Chips, this island has it all.  But how do you find them?   Or, equally important, how do you get found (if you’ve got one of those million places on offer).

I’ll start with us. Waiheke Local, just to make it easy for you, has loads of accommodation options ranging from budget to luxury . You can even check out availability and make a booking. Why, thanks!

Airbnb (have you heard of it?) is starting to take hold.  Such a good idea.   It gives visitors the chance to stay with a local family.   And locals – check it out, it’s a super way to make some money from your spare room (or treat airbnb like bookabach and rent the entire house).  They have millions (yep, millions!) of world-wide users (it’s free to list and they take a teeny tiny commission).  Nooice.

Be My Guest.  If you’ve a holiday house + want it fully managed + rented (to short term visitors), this locally owned and operated biz couldn’t be more highly recommended (by yours truly).  Super efficient, super well organized.  Super distinctive.

Stay Waiheke.  Another short term rental management business run by (lovely) locals.

Visit Waiheke.  Keeping it local again.  I don’t know much about these guys, but it’s always good to check everything out (particularly if you are leaving your beloved house in someone else’s care).

Amazing Accommodation.  These guys list loads of great Waiheke houses.  Caution though – they are not local and don’t manage – only list.

Bookabach and HolidayHouses.  Both great websites to list or find holiday rentals on the island.

If you exhaust this list and are either still looking for somewhere to stay, or somewhere to market your house, drop me a line.  I’ll help you out personally.  Seriously!!

I want to live in a world where Art is big, holidays are long, and forgiveness is taught in schools. I play every day with colour, my kids + my partner. I play to smile, to giggle, to take myself less seriously. I paint about commitment + the choices we make. Which really means I paint about making the world a better place. Which really means I paint about LOVE. The basic facts & figures: I’ve sold over 500 paintings, to people all around the world. I've been featured in magazines and newspapers in 4 different countries. I've been published in the infamous 'New Zealand's favourite Artists'. The NZ Embassy in Haymarket, London has my art on display.
